You can make a difference!!!

Last night my husband and I were talking about solving the world's famine crisis...ok not solving it, but specifically the quality of food that is given to starving people.

I woke up this morning with this on my mind. We may think we don't make much of a difference, but you know that is just not true. One thing I love about blogging is the ability to speak out, affecting people around us. I'm sure there's many ways if we just stop to give it some thought. I'm not much of a 'speaker' but I can stop and think about it.

Would you like to reach out and give someone a meal today? You can give 365 meals every year just with the click of your mouse!

Amazing how just a little bit of sacrifice on our end really can make a difference.
